    Patrol Officer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (San Jose, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted the next day. Went through a pretty rude but brisk phone screen. Was told to show up to the main office the next day. I showed up early, answered a few questionnaire sheets and sat for about an hour waiting for the recruiter to get there as she was late. When she finally got there it was like there were 1000 things on her mind. Everything was very fast paced and disorganized. Wasn't even asked anything. Based on the online application she put two locations that "suited" my needs. I felt rushed to choose one. Once I did choose, I was set up to interview with the other company that same hour. I drove over there and interviewed and got the job. Came back to main building, did a drug test, filled out paperwork, was given assignments and classes to attend and was sent on my way.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA.

    Interview

    I went in for an interview and then it took a couple of weeks to get the training started. You have to be patient because of the background checks. Everyone was really friendly and the state testing was not that bad.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell us about your security background.   2 Answers

    Negotiation

    Really there was nothing to negotiate. Your salary is dependent on the site you are at and the benefits were not that great. The only thing you could negotiate is scheduling.
